Dubai The Regional Hotspot for Hospitality Jobs

Peter Goddard is the MD of TRI Hospitality Consulting and watches hotel occupancy around the region like a hawk. Here he explains why it is likely to be a great end to the year for the Dubai hotel sector.

Average occupancy levels for the first seven months of the year reveal Dubai continues to be the region’s preferred destination achieving 82.3 per cent, while Abu Dhabi’s occupancy level was substantially lower at 67.8 per cent. Running up to the New Year, Dubai can expect to see an increase in demand as the market enters the high season period — which will see leading shopping malls in the city open for 24 hours [a day] during the weekends surrounding the holiday period.

Dubai can expect to see a boom in hospitality jobs to cope with this forecast surge in tourism towards the end of the year – which makes it a great time for you to start networking, cold calling and searching for hospitality jobs in Dubai.
